    well, i know i will catch some grief for this thread by at least one member here.....(hes the ugly frog colored michigan stinger fool) but here goes it anyhow.....

    im in the process of putting together a tattoo consisting of a nautical theme. Im going to go with the whole fouled anchor, nautical star in rough seas idea......but may substitue the anchor for a vessel caught in the "storm".

    Im looking for a saying or phrase to add to this as well.....for example, one that has crossed my mind was:

    "Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm"


    "Anyone can steer the course when the seas are calm"

    just seeing if anyone out there has any other ideas for phrases or sayings.
